Today I went back to my OBGYN to have my blood pressure checked and it was exactly the same as it was the first time I walked into his office. YEAH! It was 100/62 - Praise the Lord! My vision is still not good in my left eye. The earliest I can get in to see the eye doctor is a week from tomorrow. My medical insurance company said they would cover it since the problem was caused by the preeclampsia. However, the eye doctor's office warned me that even though they say they will cover it, they never do. Yikes! We'll be praying about that.
In other news, I stopped in at the Nursing Station after my appointment today. It's this great little store with items for you to rent and take home, or use free of charge in the store. I went in because they have a baby scale and I wanted to weigh Owen. He's being fed by breast milk only so it's kind of hard to know exactly how much he is eating. The books say he should eat 15 minutes per side per feeding, but I'm lucky if he eats 15 minutes total at a feeding. He eats exactly every 3 hours and is doing great. When we left the hospital two weeks ago today he weight 5 pounds 2 ounces. Today I stripped him all the way down to get an accurate measure and he now weighs just over 7 pounds!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He has gained almost 2 entire pounds in 2 weeks! I am very pleased and the lady working there seemed to be very impressed with his progress. Owen thanked her by peeing all over her. While I was there I had to nurse the baby so I tried out the pillow called "My Brest Friend." Has anyone ever used it? I thought it was great!
I posted a few pictures below. You have to take note of the Spiderman pictures. You may recall that back in May my nephew had a cool spiderman birthday party with an awesome spiderman cake. Ben and I got him a spiderman costume which he just loved. When Owen was born my sister let her kids pick out gifts for him. Would you believe that Cole found a spiderman outfit for him??? He sure did! So today we put it on him and took some pictures for Cole to enjoy.
